Kukla's Korner Hockey

While most of the focus in the NHL free-agent market that opens today will be on unrestricted free agents, Panthers General Manager Mike Keenan appears to be zeroing in on one of the restricted variety: defenseman Chris Pronger. Keenan traveled Sunday from Ottawa to Toronto, apparently so that he could be closer to many of the big-name agents who will broker deals when the free-agent market opens today at noon. Not coincidentally, one of those agents is Pat Morris of Newport Sports Management, who represents Pronger and always has taken a keen interest in his career. Morris did not return phone messages Sunday. Sources acknowledged Sunday that Keenan has had "discussions" with St. Louis about the 6-foot-6, 220-pound defenseman, though Keenan did deny one report that a possible deal could involve Panthers defenseman Jay Bouwmeester.
